upper intermediate level
To provide Ss with practice in reading for gist and detail, and in deducing meaning from context through two texts about paranormal happenings.
To give Ss practice in speaking for fluency.
Procedure (39-49 minutes)
The Ss will talk in pairs whether they agree with the sentence below ( which will be on the board). " For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible." After they finished speaking, I will ask who agrees with that statement.
I will show them HO1 and read the title then ask them to read the beginnings of two true stories and then put them in pairs to guess what will happen next. I will monitor them to make sure they are following my instructions.
Half of the class will be A, the other half will be B. They read they stories fast and check their guesses. After they have read their stories, I will ask if their guesses were right.
They read their texts again and guess the meanings of the underlined words and complete the glossary. They will check their answers in their pair. I will monitor them closely to see which words are problematic for them. After that some CCQs or teaching (going through MFP) might be needed.
They Ss will be regrouped and will be put in pairs. They will sit face to face and tell what their story was to the person who has not read the same story. I will monitor them while they are working in pairs to make sure they are doing the right task.
